Sara Rainford is bringing her adventures to the public.

“X” could stand for xplore, xtreme, or xcite, all of which describe this series of photographs.

For the first time in the Kootenays, Sara Rainford is showing her adventure series photography in a show entitled “X” at the Hidden Garden Gallery, August 6 to 13 with a reception on Tuesday, August 7, 7 to 9 p.m.

Upon her return, Sara entered a photo taken in Bolivia, into the 1998 Banff Mountain Photography Competition. It won the Grand prize that year and launched her career as a photographer.
